29th May 2007 Autograph bearMaria has made some more Autograph bears - these bears are made from unbleached calico and are supplied with a pen.

15th April 2007 We had a good bear fair - our largest yet. John has been away again to New York - yes he promised to stay at home but you know what he is like. He is off again at the end of April, Wilbeary put his foot down and insisted that if John had to go then the least he could do was to take Wilbeary and Maria with him. So, we are all going the Memphis on Friday!! Maria said "Gracelands!!". We will be back in the studio on Sunday 6th May. Keep an eye on Wilbeary's Blog for news.

4th March 2007 It has been a busy year so far - John has been to Barcelona, New York (twice), Bangalore and Edinburgh. He is off again tomorrow to New York again - we are beginning to think he doesn't like staying at home!!! He tells us that he will be back for a while after this trip.
Easter Monday's bear fair looks like being our largest yet; we have stalls in the Pavilion and in the log cabin - so make sure that you visit both locations. Both John and Claire will be home for the fair.
